some days you get lucky, some days you get good, once in a blue moon both happen.

1.Circle overheard and check if any gophers have their heads up.
2.Head down and start sucking on that seat cushion
3.Almost there.

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

I have only seen one plane go lower than that without crashing; a member of ours (Fox22) was out honking around with his spad and the gallery was egging him on to go "Lower! Lower!". On his last pas we heard the prop clipping the clover blossoms on the strip.

However, for a scale model, that picture is priceless!

dave remeber at the 2 year ago open house day when the extream, that 3d plane flew and the clipped his rudder and it fell off then he rolled up upright and landed :P that was awsome!

But those pictures are really nice, with a 1/5 scale mustang to, that man has guts! he must have held if for a wile to for the camera man to get a shot like that.

That's something I only attempt with planes that "don't really matter anymore". Amazing flying. Good thing there were no ant hills in the path.
I never crash...I land with style!
